With views that rival those from Twin Peaks and none of the tourists, Corona Heights Park is an excellent weekend chill-out. Climb the 220 feet to the rocky “crown” of the park and you’ll savor a cityscape that stretches from downtown to Mount Butano and the Bay. Even the fenced-in dog park has panoramic views—great for that loveable Lab or mangy mutt. There are plenty of paths to walk, jog, or stroll. For a Super Sunday alternative, bring some chips and guacamole and plop yourself in front of this wide-screen display.
Entrance at the corner of Roosevelt Way and Museum Way.
TIP: The San Francisco Parks Trust Web site posts a number of programs for volunteers to help spruce up our local treasures. Check out the Corona Heights native grasslands restoration project February 17 from 10 a.m. to noon. Clean your green!
